Land Ho!! egg carton raft craft
I didn’t do much craft with Molly over the Easter holidays – choosing instead to visit friends and generally ‘mess about’ outside as much as possible, between the hail showers, before she returns to the classroom tomorrow.
So this afternoon I decided it was time to get out the paint and glue and spend a bit of time creating something for the Tinkerlab Creative Challenge.
With egg cartons, lollipop sticks and a glue gun I made a sturdy raft with a mast and crows nest before handing over to Molly to pick the paint and get busy with the brush. While she was painting the raft, her sleeves and the table!! I cut a piece of fabric for the flag and watercolour paper for the sail. I think my favourite bit is the ‘girlie’ pirate skull and cross-bone sail Molly drew – a menacing sight for sure on the high seas :)
